If Melissa’s defense can step up they have a shot. They have to do a better job of covering the deep pass and honestly Nigel Smith has to turn it up full throttle on the dline this week and cause havoc. I believe both offenses are gonna score numerous times but it depends on the defenses.

I agree that Melissa’s D has step up to give them a chance and some of their dudes disappear at times.  LJ’s receivers (all power 5, D-1 recruits)  have an enormous advantage over the Melissa secondary.  Melissa is trying another kid, #7, at safety to give them a little size.  If #2 from Melissa can get home on a consistent basis it will help tremendously but I suspect they double him most of the night if he is getting pressure.

Melissa was definitely the better team.    Very sloppy game by both teams and the refs.  Melissa D was pretty strong with a unconventional 3 safety/umbrella look which LJ never solved.  LJ has a QB issue that was exposed.  Melissa offense was good enough even after all the turnovers.  LJ just let #9 of Melissa run free all night and never changed their D on him it appeared and it cost them.  #9 for Melissa was best player on the field and it wasn’t even close.  Without him they lose by 2 TD’s.  Kid is a beast.  LJ was out-coached and outplayed and the right team won.
